Re: [BKARTS] Archival oils on paper

If you cannot find a paper that meets your needs, nor feel comfortable with applying something that might not work (sealer over an oil sounds impossible?), why not look at the matt finish polyester films that are undoubtedly available.

I am trying to increase the transparency (translucency?) of
paper-plastic scrapbooking vellum. The best solution I can think of is
to use Liquin or linseed oil soaked into the paper. Since the treated
sheet will also be touching paper around it, I will need to seal it so
the oil doesn't bleed. My first thought was to use a acrylic sealer. I
could also use spray-fix, but I don't have much faith that it would
cover the entire surface well enough to prevent bleeding. Can I treat
both sides or does the oil need to breath as it ages? How archival would
this method be? Any other ideas?
